*How we work out example prices. Customers will pay £90.16 a year for professional indemnity of £1.5m if they are also a member of one of the recognised professional bodies that receive 20% discount from us. £1.74 per week is based on a monthly cost when paying for the policy in one annual payment. Paying monthly is usually more expensive as you'll pay interest. This is the prices from amount as customers have the option of increasing their level of cover and therefore may pay more than this. 

**No excess applies to the core insurance (public liability, professional indemnity, employers liability, directors and officers), however for any additional insurance taken certain excess may apply. Please contact us for details.
